Remote Live Demonstration

Live Remote Demonstrations
By Lyle Jamieson

What happens when you have a demonstration going at your club meeting?  Participants are sitting around looking at a monitor and listening to the demonstrator using a microphone and amplifier.

When I, as a demonstrator, am there in person, the participants can not all get up and stand behind me and look over my shoulder to see my techniques, they look at the monitor.  They are not all sitting directly in front of the lathe so they can see the shapes develop, they look at the monitor.

Soooo, why do I need to be in your shop?  With a Live Remote Demonstration I will have multiple cameras and live audio and video with good quality production. 

You will be able to see:

    • The lathe
    • The workpiece zoomed in close from multiple angles
    • Video of me as I address the participants
    • You can see and hear me and I can see and hear you
    • I can ask and answer questions live
    • You can ask and answer questions live

Added benefits are:

    • You don’t have to sweep up the shavings when I’m done
    • You don’t need a shop at all, no lathe, no grinding wheel, no compressor, no chalk board, etc.
    • You can have a meeting in a school, church basement, or somebody’s living room, or wherever there is an internet connection
    • No software or computer expertise necessary.  The equipment on your end is minimal and likely already handy.  All you need is a monitor and access to the internet and somebody’s laptop computer.
    • No travel expenses and reduced fee structure.

Have your club Program Chair or President give me a call for details.

Lyle Jamieson Live Video Demonstration from Michigan to England

Cheam Woodturners UK host Lyle Jamieson demonstration On April 12th, 2018

Cheam Woodturners Guild hosted a demo by Lyle Jamieson. Cheam members and guests from five other clubs, gathered at the Mathematics Faculty in Epsom College, for what was to be a UK first – a remote live demo. The demonstration went well, with no audio or video dropouts during the whole two hours. Lyle was able to see and hear the audience. We in turn, had high quality audio and video through the College computers and projector. Lyle’s demo topic was the hollowing process and covered all the core elements one needed to know – all of which held our attendee’s attention for the full two hours. We posed a wide range of questions to Lyle all of which he gave full answers to. According to Cheam, it was almost as if Lyle Jamieson was in the room. The benefits are clear. The demonstrator has a good interaction with the audience and does not have the rigors of travel, setup, and take down. What’s more, major names on the international woodturning circuit can be brought in without the hassle of travel and accommodation expenses. And best of all, there’s no sweeping up afterwards! ~ David Buskell

From Joy Szott, from East Surrey Woodturning Guild

They think it was probably the first of its kind in the UK and I’m sure it will not be the last. The demo viewing was held at Epsom College on a large screen where we could see and hear Lyle working in his own workshop 3000 miles away…. a strange concept. He could hear and see us, and we could ask him questions. There was no noise from his lathe and no dust either…. wonderful! He used various cameras at his end showing the work at different angles. Sadly, the demo was over in just two hours and I think most of us would have loved a bit more time……so maybe another club will soon take up the idea and organize something similar and throw the doors open to neighboring clubs too. It would be well worth the visit. Anyone interested in looking Lyle up can find info at He also does demos on YouTube which are well worth a watch, with good close-up pictures of gouge positions against wood.
